Twitter is better

Devils in the details. Were they violations? People I imagine would protest certain posts. That's how they monitor things.  One thing I do know for sure is Twitter had an improper relationship with the Democrats and routinely misscharacterized content to make it fit their agenda.  Hunters laptop is just one example.

I personally have no familiarity with Twitter,  but I'm pretty sure that's a violation of policy.  Not even close to trying to silence your opposition like we now know was common practice.  Asking for entire content be removed from all users such as vaccine discussion was clearly Government censorship. Not the same as flagging content that violates policy.

Some content has to be filtered.  Social media can't allow itself to be the medium for crazies and cynics to spread propaganda and lies that will definitely result in damage to society.  People don't have the right to yell fire in a crowded theater.

Trump is an easily triggered snowflake.  By comparison, half of social media chants vulgarities at Biden on a regular basis and we hear crickets from him.

I don't necessarily disagree.

As an aside, before social media the cynics and crazies still rambled. Sometimes in the literal public square or at the bar or wrestling tournaments, wherever. I think everyone saw them as just what they were. Why do we need to protect people on social media from seeing them and would you let me decide who they are?

User experience has gone down the shitter. I use(d) Blue because I don’t want to fat-finger a stat because, you know, phones/autocorrect/etc. and that won’t even work. Locked into a stuck profile because I changed my image - which used to take seconds.

They’ve gone and effed it all up.

Because elections are rigged, people die, people get sick,  people are scammed, child porn is distributed and so on and so forth.  Assuming it was your company, I wouldn't have any options.  I can criticize you, likely on your own platform.  If you were king for a day, how would you decide what to filter?

Are you saying Twitter no long functions properly?

       I don't want child porn distributed. Preventing speech that break laws or facilitates breaking the law would be a good guide. Other than that I don't understand most of your other examples?

     I don't see how having some arbitrary person or a computer program hiding certain speech is helpful in any way. You don't think society exposing it as wrong or bad would be more effective?

Does Twitter get to make the rules about what content it hosts on its private property?

Yes but when they colluded with the government then the government was breaking the law,  also they have an obligation to provide equal and consistent applications of it policies. There is an agreement that they need to hold up their end of.

Of course it does. Did I make an argument that it shouldn't?

There's been a lot of "Buh mah free speech" screeching on here with mentions of criminal liability and first amendment ramifications.

Twitter is a private company that can decide what they allow, outside of illegality, on their property.

I don't currently like how they're deciding things, but that's something different.

Glad to see you're not on that side of things.

Which law was broken?

Cite the statute and give a cause of action.

You can't be serious. 

You said, "the government was breaking the law".

I think it's reasonable to ask, "Which law was broken?" and "How would that be prosecuted?"

Otherwise, you're just talking out your ass.


You also seem to think, "they have an obligation to provide equal and consistent applications of it policies". Twitter has no obligation to do this.

It's a company owned website. Private property. It would be nice.
